"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

What is the correct pronunciation of the word "Alzheimer's" that is a mental disease? I have heard two to three pronunciations of it.

    Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60%to70% of cases of dementia.It is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and gets worse over time.The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events(short term memory loss)
